Maine Coons are said to be the largest domesticated felines in the world, yet some of us have no clear idea on how big they actually are. Male cats could go from 5.9 to a whopping 8.2 kg, while adult females could go from 3.6 to 5.4 kg. However, some cats could even weigh bigger than that! These gentle giant floofballs are great as your fluffy companions, and also they could be adorably spoiled at times. Here are some of the cutest Maine Coons that we found on the internet.
1. Mamma’s boy
Despite being almost too big to fit in his mamma’s arms, this spoiled baby is out here to prove that you’re never too old to have cuddles with your mom. He looks quite content to sit in his mom’s arms all day, despite the fact that most cats hate being picked up! Maybe Maine Coons are really just over-sized babies.
2. A rare picture of a black lion
If, like us, you’re trying and failing to workout from home during lockdown, then maybe the answer is to adopt a Maine Coon cat. Forget about weights – lifting this big fluff-ball up every day would be enough to get those muscles pumped. Just imagine one in each hand!
3. “Make sure you get the tail in shot!”
Maine Coons wouldn’t be Maine Coons if they weren’t showing off their fabulous fluffy tails. If you squint your eyes a little, this gorgeous boy’s tail looks like a cloud of smoke! If he’s not called Smokey, then we see any other name as a wasted opportunity.
4. Where there’s a will, there’s a way
You know it’s time to buy a bigger chair when not even the cat will fit on it anymore – but when the cat in question is a 1 meter long Maine Coon, exceptions can be made. Cats seem to like the uncomfortable spots anyway, and this ball of fluff looks perfectly comfortable with his seating arrangement.
5. “Look at my tail, mom!”
And the award for the best tail goes to this cat right here! This gorgeous girl would give peacocks a run for their money with that extravagant tail, and she’s definitely showing it off for the camera. Just imagine having a tail that could also double up as a cozy blanket?
6. Seeing double
One thing we love most about Maine Coons is their adorable tufted feet! Those extra bits of fluff help to keep their feet super warm no matter what the weather, at the same time as looking totally adorable. If this cat still doesn’t seem that big to you, take a look in the mirror reflection. We bet he weighs an absolute ton.
7. “Look how big I am, mom!”
This kitty seems to know that this photo is all about her, and she’s looking proudly back at her mom as if to say: “I know, I know, I’m gorgeous.” We wish our cat would look at us like that.
8. Deer in the headlights
This was our exact expression when we properly looked in the mirror for the first time after devouring everything within reach during the lockdown period.
“What do you mean, summer isn’t canceled anymore? I’m not prepared!” Just us?
9. A Royal welcome
We’re almost 100 percent sure that the Queen of England is in the background of this snap, and no one can tell us otherwise. A cat this grand would almost certainly be fit for a Queen! In fact, judging by his regal exterior, we reckon he’d make a great King.
10. Floof ball
When your new fuzzy scarf comes with pointy ears and a pair of eyes, you know that your order has been seriously messed up. With that being said, we think that we’d take this adorable ball of fluff over a boring old scarf any day! Besides, he looks a lot more cuddly.
11. Blending in
Despite being an overly-large house cat, this big boy seems under the belief that if he lies really still, he can blend into the puzzle pieces on the rug. It has to be said – we think he’s pulling it off pretty well. Now someone give him a tummy rub!
12. “What do you mean, we’re out of cat biscuits?”
From the startled expression on this big guy’s face, he seems to have just been told some very shocking news. We just want to cuddle him until he feels better again! Though to be honest, we’d give any excuse for a cuddle.
13. Fuzzy pantaloons
With a butt this soft, Maine Coons can literally sit anywhere and they’ll still be comfortable. Concrete floor? Yep. Bathroom tiles? Of course. Mom’s laptop? No bother.
14. “Meet Tiger the Maine Coon. This was taken while my sister was in vet school.”
Tiger is certainly an appropriate name, and we wonder how well this brave boy did on his trip to the vets?
Imagine being in vet school and this is the animal that they bring in for you to treat? After this, the original poster’s sister will be able to handle anything!
15. Meet Mufasa
Mufasa not only has one of the best cat names, like ever, but this big chonky boy also weighs in at over 20 pounds. According to his owner, “he’s well aware of his size and is super well behaved.” What an impressive kitty!
16. Maine Coon Kitten Nana
This little kitten looks like she’s hopped straight out of a Disney movie, and don’t tell our own cats, but she’s one of the most beautiful kitties we ever did see! With a face that cute, we bet this kitty gets whatever she wants. We’ve never wanted to boop a nose so bad before.
17. Baby lion
He’s not aware of it yet, but one day this little chonk is going to be huge, just like his mama. He might be giving us a look that could melt even the coldest of hearts, but we can tell that this kitty is doing to be getting up to lots of mischief.
18. Say cheese!
In all our years of writing animal stories, we don’t think we’ve ever seen a cat smile for a picture before – and how adorable does this little cutie look! She might be small now, but those huge paws are already a sign of what’s to come.
19. A kitten bouquet
With a selection of kittens this adorable, which one would we choose? Admittedly, we’re always drawn to the runt of the litter. They just seem so small and sweet – then boom – they’re all grown up and causing chaos.
20. Meet Leo
With ears this big, this majestic boy would be the perfect eavesdropper into conversations. There’s nothing he can’t hear with those super-sized ears! We’re in love with his midnight black fur, too.
21. King of the apartment
Who needs a guard dog when you have a cat this size to keep watch over your apartment? If you saw this big fluffy guy in semi-darkness, you’d be forgiven for thinking that he was a lion or some other kind of ferocious wild cat. Yep, we reckon he’d do the job perfectly.
22. Tiny woman or huge cat?
Never before have we seen a cat with the same sized head as its owner, and despite the fact that the human is holding the cat in this snap, we’re seriously questioning who owns who. Not only are the heads similar sizes, but from one glance at those huge paws, we’d say that they’re a similar size to human hands as well! At this point, we’re very thankful that Maine Coons are such gentle giants.
23. Snow cat
With their long, thick coat and huge padded paws, Maine Coons are born to be in the snow. This sweet guy seems to be truly in his element here – and he even sticks out his tongue to get a taste of that snow! What a beautiful picture.
24. Like owner, like cat
Can anyone else see the similarities between this cat and her owner? Red hair? Check. Sassy expression? Check. Good posture? Check. Were these two separated at birth?
25. Chunky Main Coon
Now here’s a Maine Coon who doesn’t like to be picked up! We’ve got a feeling that this voluptuous kitty has just been told by her vet that she needs to shed a few pounds – and that’s what the expression on her face is all about. “It’s not fat – it’s fluff!”
26. Your Majesty
This is the most majestic cat we’ve ever seen, and with the neck beard and silvery stripes, we have to say this is one stunning mini white tiger! We simply can’t get over those orange eyes as well. This magnificent creature looks like something out of a storybook!
Who needs a dog when you can have a Maine Coon? Gustav is a gorgeous boy, but at $1200, these cats are certainly an investment! It’s lucky that a lifetime of love and cuddles more than makes up for it.
28. Mr. steal your girl
If we were the boyfriend on the receiving end of this cat’s look, we’d be accepting that we’d just lost our girlfriend to someone half our size. Though actually- we might want to reconsider the ‘half our size’ thing. This cat’s body is almost the same width and length as his owner!
29. Unique Kitty
If you were thinking that this precious kitty’s paws are a little larger than usual, then it turns out you weren’t seeing things! Apparently, this Maine Coon is a polydactyl puss, meaning that they can have either extra toes or thumbs. Well, you learn something new every day.
30. A 20lb 2-year-old
It can be hard to make friends when you’re so much bigger than the other cats, and this Maine Coon seems to be finding out all about this. He tries to reassure the others that he’s a gentle giant, but the small house cats just can’t help cowering in fear! At two-years-old, this poor guy hasn’t even stopped growing yet.
31. Sweet Dreams
Big and majestic as they are, it’s nice to see that Maine Coons still look as sweet and innocent as other cats when they’re curled up in bed. Just look at that little face! We’ve never wanted to cuddle something so bad.
32. “Just sittin’ here, melting hearts…”
This old boy proves that whatever your age, you can still be a heart-breaker. We can’t get over his beautiful markings and those gorgeous green eyes. We want one for ourselves!
33. Xan, the big ol’ Main Coon
One thing we’ve learned about Maine Coons is that the majority don’t like being picked up. From the look on this angry guy’s face, he looks like he’s gearing up for a fight – and we wouldn’t like to be his opponent. “Put me down, I say!”
34. Part-time model
This kitty might spend her day doing the usual cat activities (eating, lounging around, that kind of thing), but she does everything with such elegance and poise that her whole life can be documented into perfect photographs. We wish we could relate.
35. “I’m not ginger, I’m strawberry blonde!”
This cat is the true definition of strawberry blonde, and we’d do anything to have hair that color! We think his yellow eyes match perfectly with his fur as well. It’s like these cats were put on this earth to be beautiful.
36. “Picture taken when he was almost 7 months old.”
Now that’s one chonky kitty! For seven months old, this kitten already looks bigger than your average domestic cat – and he’s still got lots more growing to do. We wonder how much these gentle giants eat every day?
37. Bath time
According to the poster, “This is the late great Oberon, the magnificent manly Maine Coon Model, with his friend Puck, who is still with me at age 17!” You never really appreciate the sheer size of a Maine Coon until you see them with a normal moggy. What a way to show the differences!
38. Winter Ready
When you have fur has fluffy as this gorgeous cat, it makes total sense to live someplace cold and snowy. Just look how at home she looks with her built-in fur coat! Jealous, us?
39. “Tell me more, human…”
This kitty has a glint in her eye which can only mean one thing: mayhem. She’s either wondering what to destroy next, or else planning her next sabotage on her owner. Either way, she’s totally adorable, so she’ll get away with it!
40. Best friends
Aww! This picture melts our hearts. Whenever our cat sits on our head, it’s definitely not in the cozy, loving way that this Maine Coon is snuggled up with his owner. You can clearly see how close these two are!
